You can use paddle/spade bits, augers or forschner bits to drill the rod holes. We recommend auger bits, but they can be pricey. Hardware stores sell inexpensive (about $6) extension shafts that you can use with paddle/spade bits to reach the required 6-1/2" depth. Normal paddle/spade bits only allow about a 4.5" depth hole.

Each single rod bracket must be mounted into a stud. They are designed to be used by themselves or to in conjunction with our multiple rod brackets.

We recommend that you mount these brackets with a 2" long #10 wood screw (not included)

Set screw holes are drilled in the base of the rods to screw the shelf onto the bracket. You can also glue shelves onto the bracket with silicone. Both are equally effective.

Installation Directions are included. Hardware and tools not included.

of these brackets varies, by the depth of the shelf you are hanging and the length of the bracket. As a general rule, these are capable of holding 45 lbs. per the bracket, assuming the bracket is mounted into wood studs.

We do custom versions of these all the time. Feel free to contact us with your requests. 949-244-1083
